You don’t need to be Martha Stewart to pull these off!
Wedding DIYs are a fun idea, whether it’s to save a little cash or to add a personal spin on your big day. But for the less-than-artistic among us, the idea of trying your hand at sewing, calligraphy or anything involving a glue gun, is a pretty daunting one indeed.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite winter wedding DIY projects that will give an added festive feel to your big day decor. From place card holders and garlands to guestbooks and candles, these projects are simple and fun to make. Plus, you don’t need to be Martha Stewart to pull them off!
This one couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is tie cinnamon sticks, holly or winter berries with bakers twine, ribbon or string around your napkins to give them a professional styled festive polish. This is so much more personal than classic napkin holders.
These pinecone decorations can be hung as festive bunting, used as a runner for your tables or features as a garland for fireplace mantles or on your bride and groom chairs. And you can keep them in your home for Christmasses to come. They’re really easy to do – find out how to make your own over at The Sweetest Occasion.
We came across this stunning yet simple, foliage chair garland DIY featured on Once Wed and just had to share it. There’s a step-by-step tutorial to help you create your own from foraged foliage (so it’s really budget-friendly too). We love it when simple wedding DIY projects like this can have a big impact on your decor.
Add a little shimmer and shine to your tables with these simple and oh-so chic metallic dipped taper candles from Oleander and Palm. This is a beautiful idea for your ceremony candles or for your centrepieces. All you need are candles and spray paint.
We love this alternative rustic-style guest book for your winter wedding from Forever Fire Flying. So simple and budget-friendly to create, it will add a lovely personal touch to your day and can hang in your home as a keepsake for years to come.
A pine cone is an easy festive idea for your winter wedding place card holders. You can easily dip them in glitter, add white speckles like snow or spray paint them any colour you want to match your wedding colour palette. You can even leave them natural for a rustic winter look. Get your friends and family to start gathering them early and dry them out at home.
When it comes to DIY projects this is a really effective way to create a rustic glam look for your wedding. These gorgeous gold-dipped log candleholders are from Life Over Easy. They’re a little more hands-on than some of the other projects (you’ll need a wood boring drill), but you can find the full DIY here.
What’s more fun for a festive celebration than balloons? Gold dipped balloons – obviously! Balloontime and Studio DIY have a really easy tutorial. These ones would be perfect for a New Year’s Eve wedding, don’t you think?
These metallic bottles make use or those leftover wine bottles and you have a unique table centrepiece which you can use for flowers or candles. Mix and match heights and colours to give some added dimension. Soak in warm soapy water to clean and remove the labels, spray with golden or silver paint and voila. A fab, inexpensive decor idea!
Want to add some sparkle to your wedding venue? This sequin garland is the way to do it. You can use any colour of sequins you like (gold is always a winner for us!). Use it as a welcome message, share your wedding hashtag or choose a phrase that means something to you. You’ll find the full DIY on A Beautiful Mess.
